Last year saw the terrible Fast & Furious Crossroads come to Xbox. We played it over the Christmas break for some fun, and it was anything but. If you're one of the unlucky few still reeling from the effects of it, then maybe the family friendly Fast & Furious Spy Racers: Rise of SH1FT3R will take the taste out of your mouth - a new licensed game coming to Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S this November.
Coming from Outright Games - which has actually made some fun little licensed games in all fairness - Rise of SH1FT3R (we can't believe this is actually the title), is a new game based on the Netflix series Fast & Furious Spy Racers. A show we never knew existed until today.
The competitive racer sees players controlling Tony Toretto, Echo, Cisco and Layla Gray as they attempt to take down the criminal organisation SH1FT3R from obtaining an invisible car - we're not making this up at all. The gameplay trailer shows off its arcade racer style across a variety of tracks, as well as some Mario Kart inspired power-ups thrown in for good measure.
The criminal racing organization, SH1FT3R, is back! Use innovative gadgets and tear up the tracks in a globe-trotting tournament. Play as Tony Toretto and the Spy Racers in a bid to stop SH1FT3R from winning the ultimate high-tech vehicle!
No doubt this is one fans of the show will be eager to get their hands on. For the most part, Fast & Furious games haven't been great in the past, which is surprising since it seems like one of the easier properties to translate into a video game format. Maybe Fast & Furious Spy Racers: Rise of SH1FT3R will be the one to break the curse and deliver on its promise? We'll have to wait until November to find out.
